14345106 story Researchers Synthesize Real-Time Fracture Sounds 54 Posted by kdawson on Friday July 16, 2010 @01:16PM from the positively-smashing dept. ChippedTeapot writes "Researchers at Cornell University have devised an algorithm for synthesizing sounds associated with brittle fracture simulations. Computers can now automatically generate synchronized sound, motion, and graphics for physically based fracture events, such as in future interactive virtual environments. The results will be presented at ACM SIGGRAPH 2010 in Los Angeles July 25-29. Check out the smashing results on YouTube."
